- | First, you need to calculate the historical transition matrices. The transition matrix describes a system that changes over discrete time increments, in which the value of any variable in a given time period is the sum of fixed percentages of values of all variables in the previous time step. The sum of fractions along the column of the transition matrix is equal to one. The diagonal line of the transition matrix does not need to be specified since Dinamica EGO does not model the percentage of unchangeable cells, nor the transitions equal to zero. The transition rate can be passed to the LUCC model as a fixed parameter or be updated from model feedback. | + | First, you need to calculate the historical transition matrices.

The single-step matrix corresponds to a time period represented as a single time step, in turn the multiple-step matrix corresponds to a time step unit (year, month, day, etc) specified by dividing the time period by a number of time steps. For Dinamica EGO, time step can comprise any span of time, since time unit is only an external reference. A multiple-step transition matrix can only be derived from an Ergodic matrix, i.e. a matrix that has real number Eigen values and vectors. | The single-step matrix corresponds to a time period represented as a single time step, in turn the multiple-step matrix corresponds to a time step unit (year, month, day, etc) specified by dividing the time period by a number of time steps.

- | The transition rates set the net quantity of changes, that is, the percentage of land that will change to another state (land use and cover attribute), and thus they are known as net rates, and denoted in percentage. In turn, gross rates are specified as an area unit, such as hectares or km<sup>2</sup> per unit of time. In the case that there is not a solution for the multiple-step transition matrix, you still can run the model in several time steps, as defined above, calculating a fixed gross rate per time step (e.g. year) by dividing the accumulated change over the period by the number of steps over which the period is composed (this might not apply to complex transition model). Dinamica EGO converts gross rates into net rate, dividing the extent of change by the fraction of each land use and cover class prior to change, before passing it to the transition functors: //[[:Patcher]]// and //[[:Expander]]//.\\ | + | The transition rates set the net quantity of changes, that is, the percentage of land that will change to another state (land use and cover attribute), and thus they are known as net rates, and denoted in percentage. In turn, gross rates are specified as an area unit, such as hectares or km<sup>2</sup> per unit of time. In the case that there is not a solution for the multiple-step transition matrix, you still can use the submodel: Calc Net Transition Rates (See online store). Regardless matrix ergodicity, this functor calculates gross transition rates for a time-period and specified number of time-steps and then derives the matrix of mean net transition rates. Output transition matrix is an approximation of the multiple-step transition matrix at the order of 0.1% (for most cases) and thus can be used as input for multiple-step land change simulations. Or you can calculate fixed gross rate per time step (e.g. year) by dividing the accumulated change over the period by the number of steps over which the period is composed.

- | The only transition occurring is from forest (2) to deforested (1). The rates indicate that a percent of the forest is changing to deforested per unit time step, which is 3 years for the first matrix and 1 year for the latter. Thus, within this time-period deforestation is occurring at a net rate of 2.8 % per year, which means that the remaining forest is shrinking 2.8% per year. Bear in mind that like interest rates, transition rates are superimposed again and again over the stock variable, which in this case is represented by the extent of remaining forest.\\ | + | The only transition occurring is from forest (2) to deforested (1).

The net transition matrix is passed to the simulation model and Dinamica EGO browses the landscape (land use and cover) map to count the number of cells to calculate the gross rate in terms of quantity of cells to be changed. In order to set a constant gross rate you will need to pass a variable net rate to the model, which is also possible due to the ability of Dinamica EGO to incorporate feedback into the simulation.

- | Since Weights of Evidence only applies to categorical data, it is necessary to categorize continuous gray-tone maps (quantitative data, such as distance maps, altitude, and slope). A key issue to any categorization process concerns the preservation of the data structure. The present method adapted from Agterberg & Bonham-Carter (1990), calculates ranges according to the data structure by first establishing a minimum delta – specified as the increment in the graphical interface – (//Dx//) for a continuous gray-tone variable x that is used to build n incremental buffers (//Nx//) comprising intervals from //X<wrap lo>minimum</wrap>// to //X<wrap lo>minimum</wrap>// + //nDx//.Each //n// defines a threshold that divides the map into two classes: //(Nx)// and //(Nx2)//. //An// is the number of cells for a buffer (//Nx//) multiple of //n// and //dn// is the number of occurrences for the modeled event (//D//) within this buffer. The quantities An and dn are obtained for an ordered sequence of buffers //N(xminimum + nDx)//. Subsequently, values of //W+// for each buffer are calculated using equations 2 to 4. A sequence of quantities //An// is plotted against //An*exp(W+)//. Thereafter breaking points for this graph are determined by applying a line-generalizing algorithm (Intergraph, 1991) that contains three parameters: 1) minimum distance interval along //x, mindx//, 2) maximum distance interval along //x, maxdx//, and 3) tolerance angle //ft//. For //dx// (a distance between two points along x) between //mindx// and //maxdx//, a new breaking point is placed whenever //dx >= maxdx// (an angle between //v// and //v’//- vectors linking the current to the last point and the last point to its antecedent, respectively) exceeds the tolerance angle //ft//. Thus, the number of ranges decreases as a function of ft. The ranges are finally defined by linking the breaking points with straight lines. Note that //An// is practically error-free whereas //dn// is subject to a considerable amount of uncertainty because it is regarded as the realization of a random variable.

Thus, as the current example, we can apply the simulation model to assess the impacts of future trajectories of deforestation under various socioeconomic and public policies scenarios, on the emission of greenhouse gases [[http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/nature04389|(Soares-Filho et al., 2006)]], regional climate change [[ftp://cola.gmu.edu/pub/ctr/ctr_226.pdf|(Schneider et al., 2006]]; [[http://se-server.ethz.ch/staff/af/fi159/S/Sa123.pdf|Sampaio et al, 2007)]], fluvial regime [[http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/S0022-1694(03)00267-1|(Costa et al, 2003]][[http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.jhydrol.2009.02.043|,Coe et al, 2009)]], habitat loss and fragmentation[[http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/nature04389|(Soares-Filho et al., 2006,]] [[ http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.foreco.2008.10.011|Texeira et al., 2009)]] as well as the loss of the forest environmental services and economic goods [[http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/S0921-8009(96)00066-3|(Fearnside, 1997)]]. | Thus, as the current example, we can apply the simulation model to assess the impacts of future trajectories of deforestation under various socioeconomic and public policies scenarios, on the emission of greenhouse gases [[http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/nature04389|(Soares-Filho et al., 2006)]], regional climate change [[ftp://cola.gmu.edu/pub/ctr/ctr_226.pdf|(Schneider et al., 2006]]; [[http://se-server.ethz.ch/staff/af/fi159/S/Sa123.pdf|Sampaio et al, 2007)]], fluvial regime [[http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/S0022-1694(03)00267-1|(Costa et al, 2003]][[http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.jhydrol.2009.02.043|,Coe et al, 2009)]], habitat loss and fragmentation[[http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/nature04389|(Soares-Filho et al., 2006,]] [[ http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.foreco.2008.10.011|Texeira et al., 2009)]] as well as the loss of the forest environmental services and economic goods [[http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/S0921-8009(96)00066-3|(Fearnside, 1997)]]. | ||

You may want to improve this model by incorporating dynamic rates, other dynamic variables, submodels, such as the road constructor, and feedbacks from the landscape attributes to the transition rate calculation. All of these are possible in Dinamica EGO. An example of road constructor module is found in the model mato_grosso_road.xml in ''Examples\run_lucc_northern_mato_grosso\run_roads_with_comments''. Also, Dinamica EGO allows the incorporation of economic, social and political scenarios into a model that integrates the effect of these underlying causes [[http://www.eldis.org/go/topics&id=14501&type=Document#.Ufba_421EZ4|(Geist, & Lambin, 2001)]] on the trajectory of deforestation (usually these variables are input to the model using tables with keys assigned to a geographic unit, such as county, state or country). | You may want to improve this model by incorporating dynamic rates, other dynamic variables, submodels, such as the road constructor, and feedbacks from the landscape attributes to the transition rate calculation.
